On 2-3 March 2019, at Sheffield University, students will be gathering to coordinate action on a national and regional scale, share activist and campaigning skills, and debate and discuss political ideas.
At the Student Left Network conference, you’ll meet students from across the UK and get involved in coordinating student left activism for the coming year. There will be workshops, discussions, debates, votes on motions (and socials). We will also elect a National Committee to coordinate things for the coming year.
A section of the Saturday will be dedicated to discussing student union democracy and the cuts in the National Union of Students, what they mean for the student left, and how we can fight them to build a democratic, campaigning national union that supports, links up, and spreads local struggles on campuses and fights for students and alongside the labour movement on a national scale. Workshops include: fighting the far right and racism on campus; organising at work: lessons from the Deliveroo strikes; divestment and the fossil fuel industry; how is our education system making us ill? and lots more.
